    Inhaltsangabe

    An engrossing insider's account of how a teacher built one of the world's most valuable companies - rivaling Walmart and Amazon - and forever reshaped the global economy.

    In just a decade and a half, Jack Ma, a man from modest beginnings who started out as an English teacher, founded Alibaba and built it into one of the world's largest companies, an e-commerce empire on which hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers depend. Alibaba's $25 billion IPO in 2014 was the largest global IPO ever. A Rockefeller of his age who is courted by CEOs and presidents around the world, Jack is an icon for China's booming private sector and the gatekeeper to hundreds of millions of middle-class consumers.

    Duncan Clark first met Jack in 1999 in the small apartment where Jack founded Alibaba. Granted unprecedented access to a wealth of new material including exclusive interviews, Clark draws on his own experience as an early advisor to Alibaba and two decades in China chronicling the Internet's impact on the country to create an authoritative, compelling narrative account of Alibaba's rise.

    How did Jack overcome his humble origins and early failures to achieve massive success with Alibaba? How did he outsmart rival entrepreneurs from China and Silicon Valley? Can Alibaba maintain its 80 percent market share? As it forges ahead into finance and entertainment, are there limits to Alibaba's ambitions? How does the Chinese government view its rise? Will Alibaba expand further overseas, including in the US?

    Clark tells Alibaba's tale in the context of China's momentous economic and social changes, illuminating an unlikely corporate titan as never before.

    Excellent insight on the China Internet Story

    I truly appeciated the books' in depth backgroun story on entrepreneurship and the China Internet. It also does a great job at explaining the phenomenom of Alibaba - not in the inspiring Jack Ma style but in a more scientific approach. All in all a great read.

    Flat

    Lacking entrepreneurial substance. Gives a high-Level run through Alibabas history but is fairly light on the entrepreneurial story and effort on Jack. He has built a massive business and apart from some small anecdotes about a small, smelly apartment, all of that effort, struggle, and excelling that one might have hoped for is missed by this book.

    intresting story but without enough details

    the book tells a very interesting story about the uprise of Jack and Ali baba, but I feel like the author is just telling the info he collected from the newspapers about the topic, like no insider information and no secrets. the story is very superficial and misses a lot of details.

    Sehr informativ, manchmal etwas langatmig

    Ein sehr gutes Hörbuch voller wertvoller Informationen, in alle Richtungen. An manchen Stellen war es meiner Meinung nach etwas langatmig.

    More emotion from the reader

    Story was great but lacked a bit the no life of Jack. Reader was quite emotionless and could be boring for some listener.
